My little basement shop
Sep 27th, 2011 at 6:20pm
 
Here's a few shots of my little basement shop.Right now its still a work in progress.I got my lathe and drill press set up.I have a bandsaw but it is out of commission right now.Its an old Springer that was handed down to me from my grandfather before he passed away.I need to get new tires for it and another motor.Right now it has a 1/2hp on it but really needs something larger.But anyways here are the pics.

My little Rikon lathe.

What David said... it's amazing what one can do with little to no space and then what one can do with a lot of space. As long as your happy and it works for you is all that matters. smiley=thumbsup.gif

Nice set up for a small space.

I suggest replacing the grinder wheels with the white Aluminum Oxide.  They are an inexpensive upgrade.  Starting Sat Rockler has the 6" on sale for $12.  The gray wheels will not give as good an edge on your tools.

Jon,

Looks like a great setup. I would suggest that you get a small key lock safe and put your wallet and credit card in it. Then lose the key.  You are being drawn into the vortex and it can  be expensive. smiley=beer.gif smiley=beer.gif

The bowl you are working on looks nice and I like your tool holder.

Nice organization in a small area, and a good score on the DC! I see you run into the same thing I do every time I turn on the lathe... sawdust and chips accumulate rapidly on the workbench making it hard to find the tools you "just laid down a minute ago". I'm still trying to find a solution for that!

Yes Don that is my biggest problem.I'm going to build a stand just for the lathe so I can keep all the shavings off my main work bench.When I'm roughing out a bowl they fly all the way to other end of the bench.I got plans for how I want to build it.Just gotta quit buying lathe tools and get it done.

Not bad, You should have seen where I started. For a long time it didn't even have a door on it that would close all the way. In the winter time I would stuff towles around the doors to stop the cold air from getting in. You know......I still had a lot of fun out there.

At my old house the only place I had to work was outside on the front porch.Now I got my own little place in the basement which will do for now.We are renting right now and are planning to build a house next year.We have 6acres that was given to us by the LOMLs grandparents.Plenty of space for a house and a shop.I already have the plans drew out thebway I want my shop to be.Its gonna be 20 x 32 which will give me plenty of space.I'm a carpenter by trade and plan doing all the building so that will save us alot of money in the long run.Although it will take longer to build.
